Wapello Pro Rodeo Postponed to 2021 In the interest of public health and safety, the 2020 Wapello Pro Rodeo is postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. This decision has been incredibly difficult for the committee, but we know it is the right one. The health and safety of our fans, volunteers, contestants, first responders, healthcare workers, and everyone in our community is the only thing that matters right now. The only responsible decision was to put their safety first. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We’re now shifting our focus to planning for the 13th Wapello Pro Rodeo in 2021. The 2021 Wapello Pro Rodeo will be the 40th anniversary of the Wapello FFA hosting a rodeo. In the meantime, the Wapello FFA will be doing all we can to help our fans and our community stay healthy and remain positive as we all navigate through this difficult time. We look forward to bringing back quality family entertainment to Wapello, surrounding communities, and Southeast Iowa next year.

Prom Update. Bare with me... With MUCH consideration and conversation with myself, Mr. Peterson, Mr. Bohlen, Ms. Wade, and the Post-Prom committee, we have decided to go ahead with a prom for our students. We want the kids to have this moment. They deserve this moment. With that being said... Prom will be held at Harvest View Farms in Sperry. Prom will go from 6pm-11pm. ( this may seem like a long time but food will be provided and games will be set up with post prom so we want to give the kids enough time for all of the activities and pictures with Jaime) The capacity at Harvest View Farms is 160 people at 50%. We will follow social distancing guidelines. There will be indoor outdoor seating available to help with those guidelines. We will also follow the regulations that softball and baseball have to follow with taking temperatures of the kids as they come to the venue. IF you have a temperature, you will NOT be allowed in. We will have sanitizer available and also, we are not requiring masks but recommend them if you feel that you would like to wear one. Grand March into the venue WILL (or is planned to be) live streamed. We have also decided to do a cruise night type grand march (More will come for that in a different post of how it will work) for those that do not have internet capabilities. The plan is to have students out on 2nd street downtown from 4-5pm (weather permitting) for everyone to see. Then they will head to Harvest View Farms, from their prom experience. Prom and grand march are for STUDENTS only. We ask that no parents or others come (other than sponsors/chaperones) to the venue as we are trying to follow guidelines and social distancing. Jaime will be set up with photos to purchase. We will get those forms out to you very soon. We also will have food provided at the venue and post prom will also be set up with some games and prizes for kids to enjoy while at prom and to also help with the social distancing. STUDENTS that are juniors and seniors; PLEASE try your best to follow social distancing. Also I will be sending out google forms for you to tell me who your date will be and for King and Queen Vote. We will not be having waiters and waitresses this year, No little king and queen and no ushers in order to keep up on social distancing to the best of our abilities. I may have forgotten some details but I will put out more as I think of them. This is for the kids and we want them to have fun. With all of the money spent, and how this year has gone, its the least we can do. If you are not comfortable with your child attending prom, please know they are not required to attend. We will understand fully. Thank you. Brittani Beeding

Baseball: What to know for tonight’s 5PM opening practice. When you come to practice today, enter through the right field corner, do not enter any dugout, the locker room is off limits, and bring water for yourself. Please stay 6 feet away from anyone else and put your gear along the fence, at least 6 feet apart. We will begin screenings at 4:40, it would be good to be early. But please remain in your car until we are set up to take players in. We will be going over all protocols and expectations with players tonight to begin practice. If you have a sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, close contact with someone who has tested positive, or fever... do NOT come to practice. And please contact Coach Brown at 563-506-2341. We will be checking temps at the field and asking these questions of each player as well. Together we can make this season a success, please be patient as we will try to make things as smooth as possible.

May 28, 2020 Update: Some updates on Prom and Graduation for everyone. Let's start with Prom. We are currently exploring every possibility to have a Promish type event on June 20. We're working on an appropriate location and format that will allow us to follow the Governor's guidelines while still allowing our kids to recapture this end-of-year experience. There will be more information coming on this as we are able to finalize more details. Next, let's talk about Graduation. It looks as if we will be able to hold a Graduation ceremony on June 28 at 7:00 pm at the football field. Again, more details will be released as they are finalized. Since the event would be held outside, we are not limited as to the number of people who can attend, provided we maintain social distancing. There's still a great deal of work to do in order to make both of these events happen. And, by now, we all realize that the best laid plans can be for nothing as the COVID-19 continues. But, as of now, both Prom and Graduation are a go. Baseball and softball practice for HS begins on Monday. There are many rules that coaches need to follow. This is being used as a trial run by the state and its success or failure will play a role in what the fall will look like. Please be patient with everyone as we work to operate within these new rules being placed upon us. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Stay six feet away from other people who don't live with you. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

May 27, 2020 Update Happy cloudy Wednesday afternoon! We are working on developing a survey for parents to get some ideas about what worked well this spring for distance learning and what didn't work so well. Many factors are outside of our control, but as we plan for next year, this information will be very helpful. There are many, many sites out there are that claiming to be the official regulations that must happen in order for schools to reopen. I cannot stress enough that no one knows, at this point, what the fall will look like. Schools are making plans for many different contingencies, but there are no hard and fast rules that have been established for Iowa schools to reopen. Also, remember that schools are controlled by state governments. Any requirements will come from Des Moines. A note on Junior High baseball. The Department of Education decided that high school baseball/softball could take place, but that JH baseball/softball could not. If that seems a little odd to you, there's a good reason for that. Youth leagues can happen. Traveling teams can happen. High School games can happen. JH is the only sector that does not have permission to play. This is a state-level decision and not one made by individual school districts.

May 26, 2020 Update: Tomorrow night's board meeting will be at 6:00 in the district office. In order to promote and encourage social distancing, the meeting will be livestreamed on the district Facebook page. This afternoon is the parade honoring the 5 retirees from WCSD. If you would like to be part of the parade, be at the Wapello Fair grounds on the north end of town at 5:45. Congratulations to Phyllis Connolly, Ken Spielbauer, Judy Gerst, Kathy Begey, and Merle Unkrich! Some random social distancing information for you today. Many people have a hard time picturing six feet, so here are some things to help you determine if you are maintaining the correct amount of social distance. 6 feet is the same as: the typical refrigerator after you have pushed it over; the average couch, provided your children have not ruined it by playing "quarantine tag"; 2 adult cats stretched end to end; and, of course, one Iowa State Fair Butter Cow. In addition to maintaining the same distance as two adult cats stretched end to end, remember all the recommendations: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are ill. Wash your hand. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

As many of you know, today is supposed to be graduation day for our Wapello HS 2020 grads. Well, that day will eventually come and we will honor our seniors with the typical graduation ceremony later this summer. However, the WCSD staff thought it would be fun to give our Class of 2020 grads a special video on what should have been their day. The staff took on the Tik Tok Quarantine Catch Challenge. Check out our special, unique, and definitely entertaining gift to our senior class! #wearewapello #wapellotribepride #quarantinecatchchallenge #diplomatoss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfAMsf6yAOE&feature=youtu.be

May 21 Update: That's right folks, I'm back. Did you miss me? I've been out of commission for a little while, but I'm slowly working my way back. The big news to come out of Des Moines is that high school baseball and softball are opened up. Practices can begin on June 1 and games can begin on June 15. There is a laundry list of requirements that coaches have to follow regarding distancing of kids and other factors, but we can work with that. Unfortunately, JH baseball and softball will not be coming back in June. This was announced today and will surely come as a disappointment to many folks. As we learn more about HS baseball/softball schedules, we'll send out the information. At this point, it is looking as if baseball and softball games will happen at alternate sites, in order to reduce crowd numbers. The Southeast Iowa Superconference will be determining specific schedules. Stay tuned for more information. As Iowa starts to open up, the guidelines are still valid: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. 6 feet is more than you think it is. Remember, one butter cow's distance. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

Today's Senior Shoutout goes to Leigha Weyrick. She is the daughter of Sydney and Fred Weyrick. While in high school Leigha has been active in Basketball, Soccer, and Band all four years. Leigha's plans after graduation are still to be determined. We asked Leigha to name a teacher/staff member who has had an impact on her life. She named Mr. Brandon Brown for this because, "He is a great basketball coach! I appreciate how he wants to build the Wapello girls basketball program into a winning tradition and how he made us feel like a family - including the team meals. Thank you for letting me be a part of the team. I am looking forward to watching where he takes the program in the future." When asked her advice for underclassmen, Leigha said "Always give your all and go to all summer practices - that is where you become great! Believe in yourself. You are coming from a great place. Go to open gym in the summer. Cheer for your teammates on your teams." Congratulations and best wishes to Leigha on her graduation from WHS with the class of 2020. #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #classof2020

Her future include attending Southeastern Community College, then transfer to a four year college to purse a degree related to the environment. We asked Emerald to name a teacher/staff member who has had an impact on her life. She named Ms. Rena Philp for this because, "[with] her being the school counselor, she was always there to talk to me when I needed it. I knew I could count on her to give me good advice." When asked her advice for underclassmen, Emerald said "Enjoy the rest of each individual school day while you can, before you’re never a teen again." Congratulations and best wishes to Emerald on her graduation from WHS with the class of 2020. #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #classof2020

Monday's second Senior Shoutout is for Logan Steahr. Logan is the son of Jolene Stanford and Michael Steahr. During high school, Logan spent his time focusing on his school work. After graduation, Logan plans to attend Southeastern Community College to study in the welding program. We asked Logan to name a teacher/staff member who has made an impact on his life while in school. He named Ms. Jane Bostian because, "She was always incredibly kind to everyone, and just lax enough for her classes to be fun whenever I was in them. She has always seemed like a teacher first and foremost, and a friend second. (Plus when I got left behind on the London subway in 2017 she insisted on holding my hand the rest of the time we rode them, lol)." When we asked Logan his advice to the underclassmen of WHS, he said, "You might feel like school is taking forever and you cant wait to be out, but I promise that when the time comes, you will miss having a set in stone schedule. Make the most of it while you can." Congratulations and best wishes to Logan on his graduation from WHS with the class of 2020! #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #Class of 2020

Dakota is the daughter of Roger and Marla Woodsmall. She just recently transferred to Wapello, but has participated in Cross-Country and Track for one year during high school.

The staff of WHS want to wish Dakota best wishes and Congratulations as she graduates with the class of 2020. #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #classof2020

She has always supported me in everything I have done, and was there as a shoulder to cry on when things didn't work out. Ms. Jane Bostian was not only one of my teachers but also a role model for me. She has given me confidence in myself and strength to continue being myself. I could never thank her enough for all she has done for me." When asked her advice for underclassmen, Alex said "Treat people with kindness, including yourself."

March 11, 2020 Update: The weather yesterday felt like a day in late fall, rather than spring. I'm really hoping it was a fluke. Governor Reynolds hinted that she will reveal some details tomorrow about continued reopening efforts. I have no idea what those details might be. Time will tell. I will be out of commission for a couple days, so there won't be any daily updates. Fear not. They shall return. In the meantime... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you belong to a high risk group. Wash your hands. If you are out and about, practice social distance. For you State Fair fans, social distancing means keep one butter cow distance from other people. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

May 8, 2020 Update: Happy Friday, everyone! Remember to pick up your missing clothes, notebooks, clothes, pencils, clothes, etc...from the school buildings. It's a shame your closets are sitting half empty when your clothes are on a lost and found table. There have been many rumors floating around about summer activities. Some say baseball and softball will start up. Some say the seasons are a lost cause. Governor Reynolds has said that she will issue guidance on summer activities by June 1. I'm confident we'll hear something before June 1. But, until the governor makes an announcement, everything is just a rumor. With certain parts of Iowa's economy opening up, the guidance from public health remains largely the same. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. If you are in a high risk group, stay home. Wash your hands. If you are out and about, practice social distancing of at least 6 feet. Wash your hands. Enjoy the weekend, everyone. I think it's going to get chilly. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

The piles are getting smaller, but we still have lots and lots of things that really belong in your own house, rather than the school. Check for missing clothes. Chances are good that they are sitting at one of the schools! ***Seniors, please contact either Michelle Dickey or Jolene Standford regarding senior T-shirts. They want to make sure every senior has a shirt. No cost to you. The cost has been covered by donors. ***Kids, I hope all of you washed your feet after reading yesterday's update. If not, wash them especially well tonight! ***Today, the guidelines are presented to you in Esperanto. This language was created in the late 1800s and was supposed to become the universal language that replaced all of the other languages on the planet. Yeah, well, that was a big failure. But, the language lives on. Enjoy. Lavu viajn manojn. Kovru vian tuson. Lavu viajn manojn. Restu hejme. Lavu viajn manojn. Praktiku socian distancadon.

Happy Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week! We are in strange times right now, and school certainly doesn't look like it did only a few months ago. But one of the lessons that COVID-19 is teaching us is that schools play a huge role in the lives of our students and our community. And schools can't operate without amazing people. And that's what we have, absolutely amazing people. So, thank you to all of the teachers and staff who are figuring out how to operate in different ways, with different technologies, with different expectations, and a whole lot of unknowns. Thank you for stepping up and confronting this latest challenge. Your work, much of it out of sight and behind the scenes, is vitally important and tremendously appreciated. Thank you. Mike

School fulfill many functions, but serving as a thrift store for lost articles of clothing is a role we will gladly give up! Today, I decided to share a gross fact with everyone. Did you know that, on average, your feet have over 250,000 sweat glands and give off almost 1 cup of sweat EACH DAY? Something to ponder... And while you're pondering... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home. Resist the temptation. Stay home. Wash your hands. If you leave home, practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

And after all of that lead-in, there isn't much new to report. If you weren't able to get to the buildings to pick up your child's belongings, you can still call the school and arrange a time. Also, remember to ask about the lost and found items. It is absolutely amazing how many clothes go missing from kids' closets over the course of a year. And what's up with single socks? How does someone lose one sock? It is truly a mystery. And no update would be complete without... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home. 'Nuf said. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

May 4, 2020 update: If you did not have a chance to pick up your child's belongings from the elementary school today, please call the school and make arrangements to pick them up. The secondary building is open for pickup tomorrow. High school students in the morning. Middle school parents in the afternoon. Now, we aren't going to make you come to the building twice to pick up things. If you have a high schooler and a middle schooler, you can pick up everything at once. When I was an English teacher, I would sometimes challenge my students to complete a piece of writing without using a certain letter of the alphabet. Some letters were easier than others. I asked Matthew to pick a letter of the alphabet at random. Of course, he picked the letter "E." So, here is my attempt to give today's guidelines without using the letter "E." Wash your hands. Cloak your cough. Wash your hands. Stay in your accommodations. Stay in your lodgings. Stay in your pad. Wash your hands. If you must go from your lodgings, apply social distancing. Wash your hands. Isolation does strange things to one's brain. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

May 1, 2020 Update Happy 1st day of May. At least, I think it's the first day of May. Anyone else having trouble with days blurring together? We have plans for Graduation and Prom. Graduation is scheduled for June 28 with a 7:00pm start at the football field. If we are not allowed to gather on June 28, the alternate date will be July 11 at 10:00am at the football field. Rain locations for both days will be the high school. If we are still locked down in July, we will figure out some type of virtual event to honor our seniors. Prom is scheduled for June 20. If we aren't able to gather by then, we will work to put together some type of dance event later in the summer, potentially after graduation. Our hope is that this information will allow families to at least start to plan. Be sure to check previous updates for schedules to come and pick up your child's personal belongings. We are not collecting textbooks or computers. This is just a time for you to pick up your things. Remember that Louisa County is not one of those counties that is "opening up" today. Therefore... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home. Stay home. Stay home. Wash your hands. If you must leave home, practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

Attention Seniors of 2020! We are getting rid of several of our rocks. We thought it would be cool to have you grab a rock from our yard, paint it at home, & Shaggy’s will use it for their new landscaping. I’ll leave paint markers near the rocks also, in case you just want to just sign your name on one, that’s fine too. Drop it off at Shaggy’s when we do the Cruise Night. Stop by our house anytime today or tomorrow! You’ll see the pile of rocks. Help yourself! #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

While in high school Lily has been a member of the NHS for two years, and participated in Speech for one. Lily's future plan is to take a gap year as "I wait to see where God leads me".

She's willing to always listen, and she dishes out advice when needed. Ms. Bostian also goes out of her way to help others even when it doesn't benefit her. She's helped me with an abundant amount of papers and speeches over the years (and she's helped others who aren't even in her class). She's been there for me since sophomore year, and she's the type of teacher who just doesn't give up on her students. She's never given up on me, and I'm thankful for her." When asked her advice for underclassmen, Lily said "Live for Jesus Christ and Him alone because He's the way, the truth, and the life."

After graduation, Blake plans to attend Muscatine Community College, then transfer to Iowa State University to double major in Theater and Computer Engineering. When we asked Blake which staff members has had the greatest impact on him during his high shool tenure he said Ms. Bostian, Mrs. Moulton, and Mr. & Mrs. Peck. This is because "I honestly can't decide between the four of them, and it wouldn't feel right to leave three of them out. They have all helped me in all different ways become the person I am today, and I can't tell them thank you enough. Every single one of them have spent countless hours of their freetime with me practicing, teaching me, or even just hanging out. I know I don't say it enough, but thank you all for helping me on my path to a new beginning, and I cant wait for you all to see where I go in the future!" Blake's advice to underclassmen is "Do all of your work to the best of your ability, have a ton of fun, but not to much 😉, and remember to keep making memories while you still can because you never know when you will walk down the halls of your high school for the last time." Congratulations and best wishes to Blake on his graduation from WHS with the class of 2020 #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #classof2020

As of now, the restrictions for Louisa County and other areas with high case numbers remain in place. She did say that May 15 would, hopefully, see another round of openings. An exception to this is worship services. Churches are now able to have worship services, regardless of county, provided social distancing guidelines are still followed. ***Remember that breakfast and lunch pickups are Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:00 each day. This is available for anyone aged 0-19, even if you don't go to school in Wapello. ***Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home. Stay home. Stay home. Wash your hands.

Our second Senior Shoutout is to Riley Gerst. Riley is the daughter of Katie & Jarin Gerst and Kyle Fletcher. While in high school Riley has participated in many activities; one year of Speech, two years in Golf, Drama and NHS. She has also been active in Band and manager for the Girls' Basketball team for three years, along with managing Baseball and Cross-Country for four. RIley has also represented her class on Student Council and the PBIS Student Committee for four year. Riley's future plans include attending the University of Iowa to study in the Pre-Physicians Assistant program. We asked Riley to name a teacher/staff member who had an impact on her life while in school. Riley said this was Mr. Brandon Brown because, "he always encourages me when I am down because of personal or school issues. I always go to him with random or serious questions and he always answers them no matter how dumb they are. I can rant to him about everything and anything and he always gives advice even if i don’t want to hear it. Both of the Brown’s have always had my back and I could never thank them enough." When asked her advice for underclassmen, Riley said "don’t take anything for granted and participate in everything you can, that’s where you get the best memories. Become close with your grade it makes high school more enjoyable." Congratulations and best wishes to Riley on her graduation from WHS with the class of 2020. #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #classof2020

When we asked Daniel which staff member has had the greatest impact on him during his high shool tenure he said Mrs. Kristin Marshall. This is because "She always has a positive attitude. Even if she’s frustrated, she never shows it. She makes my least favorite subject a little more enjoyable." Daniel's advice to underclassmen is "Take notes and listen to teachers. Your senior classes are the most important for college." Congratulations and best wishes to Daniel on his graduation from WHS with the class of 2020 #WeAreWapello #WapelloTribePride #classof2020

April 23, 2020 Update: Happy Thursday, everyone! Teachers are going to be calling students and their families in the near future. In fact, some of these calls probably started today. The goal is to keep in contact with students and find out how we can better meet educational needs. If your family hasn't been contacted, you will be in the near future. We've noticed an increase in Zoom meeting attendance today. This is a great thing to see and this trend needs to continue. Governor Reynolds closed school buildings. She did not close school. Today's reminder will be presented to you today in Pig Latin.

These ladies are instrumental in making sure our buildings operate on a daily basis. Without their hard work and dedication, we would be at a loss.

Good morning to all! The WCSD teachers are going to begin making phone calls to all of our students over the course of the next few days. We want to check in with our kids and let you know we are thinking of you all. We also have some questions that the Iowa Department of Education, as well as our own technology directors are seeking answers to concerning student learning during this time of quarantine. Some questions may require parental help to answer. Please know, our ultimate goal is to find ways to better serve our students during this time. We are looking forward to speaking with our students.

He helped me build confidence in myself. He was always there— to support me, to push me, to give me advice, or just to listen. He is caring and selfless and everything that anyone could ever want in a teacher and/or a coach. Thank you, Parsons." When asked her advice for underclassman, Holly said "Find Joy in the Journey."

In a small town; the lights of the athletic complex act as a signal to the community to show their pride. In these unprecedented times, we illuminate the fields to show our solidarity, our hope, and express the emotions felt in the forfeiture of the spring seasons. And tonight, we lit one field longer to honor a member of the class of 2020 who was taken entirely too soon. As you look through tonight's photos and drone footage, think of the athletes who won't get to compete this spring. Especially those of the class of 2020. https://youtu.be/F6QVjWvzt2Y (photo and drone credit to Eric Small) #wearewapello #SJB ##wapellotribepride

April 17, 2020 Update: Well...we all knew it was coming, but it is still a bit of a shock. Governor Reynolds announced that schools will not reopen this school year. At this point, everyone, and I do mean everyone, has more questions than answers. But, here are some things that we do know: 1. We will work on a plan that will allow people to come and get their belongings out of the school buildings. 2. All spring sports and activities have been canceled. We will receive guidance on summer activities by June 1, as per the governor's statements today. 3. Prom, Graduation, Awards Night, and all of the other end of year events all are on hold. Obviously, they won't happen in May. However, these are important events in the lives of students. Therefore, I think we have a duty to try to salvage things as best we can. Plans will be in the works and more information will be provided when it is finalized. 4. Our commitment to maintaining connections with our students remains unchanged. Distance learning is not ideal. It is full of shortcomings, and everyone is trying to figure it out. Some things will work. Some things will not. Thank you for your support as we continue to work to do what is best for our students. 5. Finally, to the class of 2020. This is not the spring you were expecting, nor is it the spring we were hoping you would have. Please know that we are going to work very hard to provide you with as many of the experiences of your final months of high school as possible. They just may happen at an odd time of year. And please, please, please follow the guidelines: Wash your hands Cover your cough Wash your hands Stay at home. I don't know how to make it any plainer. STAY AT HOME. Wash your hands. If you absolutely must go somewhere, practice social distancing. Wash your hands #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

Here are the 3 unwritten rules of life... 1. 2. 3. Okay, at least I found it funny... *****Students, remember to attend the various Zoom sessions your teachers have set up for you. Yes, they are optional, but it's important to maintain contact with your school life, even if you can't do it in person. *****We won't even talk about the snow coming into the area tonight. *****And lest you forget: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay at home. Yes, this means you. Even if you aren't sick. Stay at home. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing.

In Mrs. Small's 6th & 7th grade Math class, she posts a problem of the day (POD). Yesterday, she posted this problem: Ron and Rebecca work in a cube factory. Each cube has 6 faces. Ron lines up 6 cubes in a row and pushes them along a table, and Rebecca sprays paint on the cubes. The faces of the cubes that are touching the table and each other won't get painted. What is the total number of faces that will get painted? Cade Lundvall, 7th grader, shared this video on how he came up with his answer! EXCELLENT JOB, CADE!

April 15, 2020 Update: Snow. On April 15th. That is wrong on so many levels. Governor Reynolds, in today's press conference, talked quite a bit about how different people have stepped up to provide help and services for people in need right now. As I was listening, all I could think was, "I sure hope no one is surprised by this." When there is a need, the people in Louisa county have always stepped up and done what needed to be done. As this pandemic drags on, I'm sure nerves are starting to fray and people are finding themselves on edge. I'm not a mental health expert, but the articles I have read tell me this is a normal response to prolonged trauma. Everyone is dealing with this in their own way, and there is no right way. May we all remember to be patient and understanding with each other. We're all sick of hearing about mitigation strategies. But, they're still important. So... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay at home. Even if you are not sick. Stay at home. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

April 14, 2020 Update: Happy Tuesday, everyone! The sun is shining and the temperature is perfect. Okay, most people would probably say it's a little chilly, but I like it! Governor Reynolds had no new school information in her press conference today. We anticipate an announcement regarding schools at some point this week. Governor Reynolds did spend quite a bit of time talking about the surge in positive COVID-19 cases in Louisa county. I encourage everyone to keep all of the employees of Tyson Foods in your thoughts and prayers. In the immortal words of Troy, Gabriella, and the rest of the cast of High School Musical, "We're All In This Together." For those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about, search for the song on YouTube. Bonus points if you then post a video recreating the group dance. In all seriousness, please follow the guidelines that have been put forth: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home. Not just if you're sick. Stay home. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing if you have to go out. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

April 13, 2020 Update: Happy day after Easter, everyone! I hope you were able to have a good weekend, in spite of the rain and the inability to travel to see family. We expect Governor Reynolds to make an announcement about schools later this week. No, I don't know what that announcement will be. Remember that Wapello food pickup is from 10:00-11:00 on Monday and Wednesday. This is open to anyone age 0-18, whether you go to school in Wapello or not. As we enter day 4,398 of COVID-19, please remember to follow the guidelines: Wash your hands. Cover your cough or sneeze. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Stay home even if you are well, unless it is an "essential" trip. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

April 7, 2020 Update In her press conference today, Governor Reynolds paid tribute to our National Guard members and highlighted the work they are doing to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are one of the many, many groups who are doing everything they can to help us through this crisis. Today was Day 2 of digital office hours. We realized that many of the high school office hours overlap. Mr. Bohlen is working to fix that problem. Wapello's board meeting will be tomorrow at 6:00 in the Auditorium. It will be livestreamed. PLEASE...I strongly encourage people to watch the board meeting from home, rather than attend in person. We will post a phone number people can use to call in for questions or comments. It won't be a perfect system, but we will make it work in order to maximize safety. Thank you in advance! Remember the rules. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

April 6, 2020 Update: Governor Reynolds held a press conference this morning, during which she announced an extended list of businesses that will be closed until the end of the month. She also indicated that law enforcement officials will have the ability to ticket people who continue to gather in large groups. Today was the first day of digital office hours for some of the staff. Whenever you try something new, there will be successes and there will be failures. That's all a part of learning. Zoom meeting information for students in grades 6-12 will be sent to individual student school email accounts. For elementary students, Zoom meeting information will be sent to parents directly. Our goal is to avoid putting Zoom links and passwords out for everyone in the world to see. As I said earlier, we are learning... As always, the Governor stressed the importance of following the guidelines put out by the CDC and public health: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. Please let me know if you have any questions. I may not know the answer right now, but I will find it out and send it out in a future update.

April 3, 2020 Update: After yesterday's announcement by Governor Reynolds, today hasn't had much in the way of new school-related developments. Please take a look at the previous post explaining the differences between "Required" and "Voluntary" continuous learning options. On behalf of the district, I would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to the community for all of the support that has been expressed. We are trying to reconfigure operations on the fly. We will have some successes. We will have some failures. It's all a part of learning something new. Everybody say it with me now... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. I hope everyone is able to enjoy the weekend. Take care. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

Good afternoon! I wanted to try to provide some clarification on “Required” vs. “Voluntary” continuous learning Yesterday, Governor Reynolds announced that schools would remain schools closed through the month of April. She also announced that if districts do not want to have to make up the additional missed days, they must adopt either the “Required” or the “Voluntary” model for continuous learning. Wapello will be adopting the “Voluntary” model. So, what is the difference between “Required” and “Voluntary” distance learning? If a school is going to go the “Required” route, that means that school is considered to be open for business. Attendance is taken, assignments are given, grades are taken, and credit is assigned. However, in order for a school to use that route, there are equity considerations that have to be taken into consideration. For example, all special education modifications and accommodations must be in place. Students who needs English Language Learner supports must be given those supports. In the era of social distancing, I don’t see how that is even possible. In addition, we cannot guarantee that all students have a reliable source of internet. If a district cannot ensure that all students have an equitable opportunity, “Required” is not the way to go. For those reasons, Wapello is choosing to use the “Voluntary” route provided by the state. Under this model, the district provides resources for kids that are optional activities. Kids are encouraged to engage, but they are not required to engage. No assignments are given. No grades are taken. Under the “Voluntary” model, no student is put at a disadvantage for learning. Our teachers are in the process of establishing digital office hours, where they will be available to answer questions from kids or parents. The intention is to maintain connections with kids and still provide learning opportunities. One of the biggest questions people have had is concerning credits and graduation. School districts have been given the flexibility to assign credit based on work that students already completed before the shutdown. Districts have also been given the flexibility to determine if seniors qualify for a diploma. Districts have been directed to be generous when making these decisions. The goal is to not punish students for circumstances that are completely beyond their control. Students will still advance to the next grade. If you were passing your classes before the shutdown, you will not need to retake them. If you were on track for graduation before the shutdown, you will graduate. Life will be good. I am sure there are more questions that people have, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Mike

April 2, 2020 Update ****At her press conference today, Governor Reynolds announced that schools will remain closed until April 30th. This news should come as no surprise to anyone. She also made reference to schools not needing to make up the additional missed time, provided they participate in either the "voluntary" or "required" plan for continued distance learning. Wapello is participating in the "voluntary" plan, which means we will not need to make up additional missed days. ****Governor Reynolds continued to stress that people continue to follow the recommendations from Public Health: Wash your hands Cover your cough Wash your hands Stay home if you are sick Wash your hands Practice social distancing Wash your hands ****If you have any questions, please let me know. If I don't know the answer, I fill find out and send the information out in a future update. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

Please share pictures of you in your PJs reading the day away. ****And just in case you forgot, although I don't know how you could: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands.

March 30, 2020 update: I just finished watching Governor Reynolds' press conference, and she has issued no new guidance on school closure. She did say she is anticipating more formal guidance from Washington, D.C. in the days to come. ***Many thanks to Tyson Foods for their donation of frozen chicken products. This will be a huge help to our meal distribution program. ***Remember our school parade starts at 1:30 tomorrow. See the following link for specific times and routes. https://www.wapello.k12.ia.us/wapello-csd-wave-parade-route. And remember to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING. ***Our virtual Spirit Week continues tomorrow with Explore Science. Create your own science experiment. Find an experiment online. Learn. Explore. Discover. And be sure to share whatever you do. Let's flood the net with pictures of science in action! ***It wouldn't be an update if we didn't include the Governor's recommendations: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

We hope all of our students can find their way to the route to wave at the staff!

March 27, 2020 update: And week two of school closure comes to an end... 1. Tyson Foods is donating 40,000 pounds of food to county schools to help during this time. This will be put toward our school lunch distribution. Many thanks to Tyson! 2. A reminder that Governor Reynolds has not given any indication that school will be closed for a longer period of time than what she has originally set. If you are hearing differently, it is only a rumor. 3. A clarification from yesterday. April 13 is the first day schools can reopen. April 13th is currently a vacation day (Easter Monday). Therefore, barring board action, the first day back for staff and students would be April 14th. 4. Continued thanks to those staff members who are working to distribute food, both through our food pantry and through our breakfast/lunch program. The need for this continues to grow. 5. On top of everything else, there is bad weather moving into the area this week. Stay alert and stay safe. 6. Finally, be watching for a post later this evening detailing plans for a virtual School Spirit Week starting on Monday, March 30th. As always... Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. Let me know if you have any questions. If I don't know the answer, I will find out and send out the information in a future update. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

March 26, 2020 update: Governor Reynolds put some more restrictions in place for businesses today, but no change in the guidance given to schools. There are all sorts of rumors floating around right now. Currently, we are all planning on coming back to school on April 13. As always, we will follow the guidance given to us by Governor Reynolds and the Iowa Department of Public Health. And the best way to keep us coming back to school on the 13th is to follow the guidance we have all been given: Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. Parents want the kids back in schools. Educators want the kids back in the school. Even the kids want to be back in school, even if they might not admit it out loud! #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

March 25, 2020 update: Good afternoon, everyone! The school and the city are working in conjunction to close down our playground equipment. Signs will be posted. Caution tape may be used. We do not like the fact that we need to do this, but in order to follow the social distancing recommendations and guidelines, both the school and city felt this was something that needed to happen. We ask that you do not use city or school playground equipment until further notice. On a more positive note, I want to draw some attention to folks who I think deserve some special recognition. Those folks are the ones who are making sure our young people continue to get fed. To: Kathy Begey, Melissa Dodd, Amanda Harris, Michelle Hemphill, Lisa Patrick, Darren Wilson, and Susan Yakle, thank you for all of the work you are doing on behalf of our young people. You are amazing folks, and please know that all of your efforts are greatly appreciated! If I left anyone off of the list, I sincerely apologize. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands.

March 23, 2020 update We are continuing to fine-tune our food delivery plans. A reminder that we have 3 delivery locations: The elementary school, the Oakville community center, and the Woodland trailer court. Pickup begins at 10 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The past couple times, we've had several meals that have not been picked up. We base our preparations on the number of people who have expressed interest. If you are in need of the meals, please come and pick them up. We have absolutely no problem preparing and distributing the food, but we want to make sure that we are being as efficient as possible, while still meeting people's needs. It's been awesome to see everyone searching for the various bears and other creatures around town. Just another example of how Wapello can take a bad situation and still find something good in it. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. Let me know if you have any questions. If I don't know the answer right now, I will find it out and send it out in a future update. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

Reposted from Wapello Fire and Rescue: Wapello Fire and Rescue received some great news today!! Each October, as part of National Fire Prevention Week, Wapello Elementary students participate in a poster contest. The local winners are awarded a T-Shirt from Wapello Fire and Rescue, and the local winners in grades 3-5 are sent on to the state contest. Those entries have been judged, and we were notified today that Wapello Elementary Student, Kenna Small was awarded 3rd place in the 5th Grade Division of the Iowa Fire Prevention Safety Poster Contest! Kenna will be presented with an award at the Ackley Fire Department on May 2. Her artwork will also be on display throughout the Iowa State Fair in the Hall of Flame. Congratulations Kenna!

March 20, 2020 update: There hasn't been very much new information for schools released today, which is probably a blessing. It's been a torrent of information the past few days. We did hear that states can now apply for a waiver to cancel state testing for the year. Iowa would need to apply to the federal Department of Education for this waiver. I fully expect Iowa to apply, so I think it is safe to say that state testing will not happen this year. (Try not to be too sad about this, kids!). Try to have a peaceful weekend, everyone. We've all been asked to make major changes in a very short time. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride

March 19, 2020 Update 1. Many, many thanks to all of the staff who have been working to take care of things as we navigate this period of closure. From cleaning the buildings, to preparing food, to gathering learning resources, to everything else that is happening, I am beyond proud of what I have seen happening. If you don’t think the employees of the school love your kids, then you are simply not paying attention. 2. Also, I am humbled beyond belief at the outpouring of community support that has been expressed toward the school district. I have lost track of the number of people who have contacted me and offered to help in any way they can. These are challenging times, but we will get through them because of the strong community of which we are a part. 3. Remember that food pickup resumes on Monday of next week. Pickups are on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:00. Sites are the elementary school, Oakville community center, and Woodland trailer court. 4. The blood drive at the Briggs center is probably the busiest blood drive I have seen in a long time. Wapello sees a need, and Wapello works to fill that need. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride 5. Governor Kim Reynolds held a press conference today and stressed that all Iowans have a role to play in slowing down the spread of COVID-19. The guidance remains the same. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Wash your hands again. Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Respect “social distancing” standards. Wash your hands yet again. Please let me know of any questions you have. If I don’t have the answers right now, I will work to get them for you and send them out in a future update.

Update for March 18, 2020 1. Just a reminder of our food delivery locations and times. This is the same information that was posted yesterday. “Meal Delivery is ready to start tomorrow, March 18. We will have three pickup locations. Wapello Elementary School, Oakville Community Center, and Woodland Mobile Home Park. Deliveries and pickup will be from 10:00-11:00. Tomorrow’s delivery will be 3 days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches. Please keep in mind that food variety may be limited at times. After this week, food deliveries will be on Mondays (2 days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches), Wednesdays (2 days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches), and Fridays (1 day’s worth of lunches and breakfasts) at the same locations and the same times. This is available to all children age 0-18. No paperwork and no qualifications. You don’t even need to go to Wapello school.” 2. Teachers are compiling possibility activities for kids to do while they are at home. Remember that none of these activities are required or graded. The goal is to provide kids (and parents) with options if they are looking for some things to do during the time away. 3. Lifetouch spring pictures: The return deadline was today, I believe. We’ve contacted the company and everything is on hold until school is back in session. Don’t worry about payment or returning picture packets until we are back in school. 4. PK and K roundups at the elementary will be rescheduled for a later date. 5. We received word today that ISASP (used to be ITBS) testing will be suspended until further notice. 6. Tonight’s board meeting will be at 6:00 in the HS auditorium. The meeting will be livestreamed so that the public can be informed without having to attend the meeting. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask. If I don’t know the answers, I will find them out and get the information pushed out. #wearewapello #wapellotribepride
